Big and Tall

I’m getting twirled and twirled
Dizzy and I don’t know where I’m going
Lauren’s taking me somewhere
I no idea where she’s taking me
I just ran into something
Lauren tells me to taste this mysterious thing
She asks me what I taste
Eww, it tastes like dirt and bark
Trying to get the dirt and maybe even a spider web out of my mouth
I try hugging this giant round thing
It’s rough and prickly It’s scratching my cheek
Different type of smells like pine trees and dirt
It’s cold and shady
Lauren says I can take off my blind fold and the mysterious thing was a TREE!
